Yokoelast - On Marx/Mosp [12rec.015]
After the release of his live-performance (12rec.009) glitch-pop jack-of-all-trades Mateusz Parzonka publishes another pearl from the binary archives of his Powerbook.
In search of alternatives in generating sounds and structures, Yokoelast discovered the programming user interface Max/MSP which potentiates the user to create his own 'instruments'. Hardware-synthesizer and mixer are sold soon, and in the course of one year Mateusz fills an entire CD with noisy and glittering track-sketches which, arranged and replenished by 12rec, represent Yokoelasts new EP.
In comparison to his Live-EP the new songs appear more compact. Anyway, norznorznorz with nearly four minutes run-time is the longest track on the EP. Yokoelast cuts his usual path between repetitive rhythm, ambient textures and the contrast of noise and melody. His songs always unfold a hypnotic pull which is resolved by him in concrete harmonies.
The iambored-artwork documents the destruction of the original sound storage medium.
